众鑫棋牌众鑫棋牌众鑫棋牌I have related to what extremity the poor young woman was reduced;how her mistress was starved to death, and died on board thatunhappy ship we met at sea, and how the whole ships company wasreduced to the last extremity. The gentlewoman, and her son, andthis maid, were first hardly used as to provisions, and at lasttotally neglected and starved - that is to say, brought to the lastextremity of hunger. One day, being discoursing with her on theextremities they suffered, I asked her if she could describe, bywhat she had felt, what it was to starve, and how it appeared? Shesaid she believed she could, and told her tale very distinctlythus:-

众鑫棋牌众鑫棋牌"First, we had for some days fared exceedingly hard, and sufferedvery great hunger; but at last we were wholly without food of anykind except sugar, and a little wine and water. The first dayafter I had received no food at all, I found myself towardsevening, empty and sick at the stomach, and nearer night muchinclined to yawning and sleep. I lay down on the couch in thegreat cabin to sleep, and slept about three hours, and awaked alittle refreshed, having taken a glass of wine when I lay down;after being about three hours awake, it being about five oclock inthe morning, I found myself empty, and my stomach sickish, and laydown again, but could not sleep at all, being very faint and ill;and thus I continued all the second day with a strange variety -first hungry, then sick again, with retchings to vomit. The secondnight, being obliged to go to bed again without any food more thana draught of fresh water, and being asleep, I dreamed I was atBarbadoes, and that the market was mightily stocked withprovisions; that I bought some for my mistress, and went and dinedvery heartily. I thought my stomach was full after this, as itwould have been after a good dinner; but when I awaked I wasexceedingly sunk in my spirits to find myself in the extremity offamily. The last glass of wine we had I drank, and put sugar init, because of its having some spirit to supply nourishment; butthere being no substance in the stomach for the digesting office towork upon, I found the only effect of the wine was to raisedisagreeable fumes from the stomach into the head; and I lay, asthey told me, stupid and senseless, as one drunk, for some time.The third day, in the morning, after a night of strange, confused,and inconsistent dreams, and rather dozing than sleeping, I awakedravenous and furious with hunger; and I question, had not myunderstanding returned and conquered it, whether if I had been amother, and had had a little child with me, its life would havebeen safe or not. This lasted about three hours, during which timeI was twice raging mad as any creature in Bedlam, as my youngmaster told me, and as he can now inform you.众鑫棋牌众鑫棋牌众鑫棋牌"In one of these fits of lunacy or distraction I fell down andstruck my face against the corner of a pallet-bed, in which mymistress lay, and with the blow the blood gushed out of my nose;and the cabin-boy bringing me a little basin, I sat down and bledinto it a great deal; and as the blood came from me I came tomyself, and the violence of the flame or fever I was in abated, andso did the ravenous part of the hunger. Then I grew sick, andretched to vomit, but could not, for I had nothing in my stomach tobring up. After I had bled some time I swooned, and they allbelieved I was dead; but I came to myself soon after, and then hada most dreadful pain in my stomach not to be described - not likethe colic, but a gnawing, eager pain for food; and towards night itwent off with a kind of earnest wishing or longing for food. Itook another draught of water with sugar in it; but my stomachloathed the sugar and brought it all up again; then I took adraught of water without sugar, and that stayed with me; and I laidme down upon the bed, praying most heartily that it would pleaseGod to take me away; and composing my mind in hopes of it, Islumbered a while, and then waking, thought myself dying, beinglight with vapours from an empty stomach. I recommended my soulthen to God, and then earnestly wished that somebody would throw meinto the into the sea.众鑫棋牌

众鑫棋牌"All this while my mistress lay by me, just, as I thought,expiring, but she bore it with much more patience than I, and gavethe last bit of bread she had left to her child, my young master,who would not have taken it, but she obliged him to eat it; and Ibelieve it saved his life. Towards the morning I slept again, andwhen I awoke I fell into a violent passion of crying, and afterthat had a second fit of violent hunger. I got up ravenous, and ina most dreadful condition; and once or twice I was going to bite myown arm. At last I saw the basin in which was the blood I had bledat my nose the day before: I ran to it, and swallowed it with suchhaste, and such a greedy appetite, as if I wondered nobody hadtaken it before, and afraid it should be taken from me now. Afterit was down, though the thoughts of it filled me with horror, yetit checked the fit of hunger, and I took another draught of water,and was composed and refreshed for some hours after. This was thefourth day; and this I kept up till towards night, when, within thecompass of three hours, I had all the several circumstances overagain, one after another, viz. sick, sleepy, eagerly hungry, painin the stomach, then ravenous again, then sick, then lunatic, thencrying, then ravenous again, and so every quarter of an hour, andmy strength wasted exceedingly; at night I lay me down, having nocomfort but in the hope that I should die before morning.众鑫棋牌众鑫棋牌
